Classification of environmental conditions - Part 3-3: Classification of groups of environmental parameters and their severities - Stationary use at weatherprotected locations

IEC 60721-3-3:2019 classifies groups of environmental parameters and their severities to which products are subjected when installed for stationary use at weatherprotected locations. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1994, Amendment 1: 1995 and Amendment 2:1996. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) Clause 3: definitions aligned with IEC 60721-3-1. b) Clause 4: aligned with IEC 60721-3-1. c) Clause 5: Clause A.3 has been incorporated into Clause 5. d) Subclause 5.2: all existing climate classes have been replaced by completely new classes. The new classes are divided into two groups. The reason for the new classes is the latest revision of IEC 60721-2-1 which incorporates new climate types. e) Subclause 5.3: addition of a new class for low air pressure. f) Defined values of chemically active substances are now by reference to ISO 9223. g) Subclause 5.6: all existing classes for mechanically active substances have been replaced by completely new classes, in alignment with IEC 60721-3-1. h) Subclause 5.7: all existing classes for mechanical conditions have been replaced by completely new classes, in alignment with IEC 60721-3-1. i) Table 1: new climatic classes with new severities. j) Table 2: new class for low air pressure. k) Table 4: new mechanically active substances classes. l) Table 5: new mechanical conditions classes. m) Annex A: revised and includes a clean climatogram. n) Annex B: revised and includes the definition of seismic environment. o) All classes regarding fire, all combined classes, all chemically active substances classes, Clause A.2, Annexes C, D and E have been removed.

CLASSIFICATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS –
Part 3-3: Classification of groups of environmental parameters
and their severities – Stationary use at weatherprotected locations
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60721-3-3 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 104:

Environmental conditions, classification, and methods of test.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1994, Amendment 1:

1995 and Amendment 2:1996. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) Clause 3: definitions aligned with IEC 60721-3-1.
b) Clause 4: aligned with IEC 60721-3-1.
c) Clause 5: Clause A.3 has been incorporated into Clause 5.

d) Subclause 5.2: all existing climate classes have been replaced by completely new classes.

The new classes are divided into two groups. The reason for the new classes is the latest

revision of IEC 60721-2-1 which incorporates new climate types.
e) Subclause 5.3: addition of a new class for low air pressure.

f) Defined values of chemically active substances are now by reference to ISO 9223.

g) Subclause 5.6: all existing classes for mechanically active substances have been replaced

by completely new classes, in alignment with IEC 60721-3-1.

h) Subclause 5.7: all existing classes for mechanical conditions have been replaced by

completely new classes, in alignment with IEC 60721-3-1.
i) Table 1: new climatic classes with new severities.
j) Table 2: new class for low air pressure.
k) Table 4: new mechanically active substances classes.
l) Table 5: new mechanical conditions classes.
m) Annex A: revised and includes a clean climatogram.
n) Annex B: revised and includes the definition of seismic environment.

o) All classes regarding fire, all combined classes, all chemically active substances classes,

Clause A.2, Annexes C, D and E have been removed.

CLASSIFICATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS –
Part 3-3: Classification of groups of environmental parameters
and their severities – Stationary use at weatherprotected locations
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60721 classifies groups of environmental parameters and their severities to

which products are subjected when installed for stationary use at weatherprotected locations.

The environmental conditions specified in this document are limited to those which can directly

affect the performance of products. Only environmental conditions as such are considered. No

special description of the effects of these conditions on the products is provided.

Environmental conditions directly related to explosion hazards, microclimate within a product,

fire extinction and ionizing radiation are excluded. Any other unforeseen incidents are also

excluded. The possibility of their occurrence can be considered as special cases. This

document does not cover equipment covered by building standards, codes or regulations.

Conditions of stationary use at non-weatherprotected locations, portable and non-stationary

use, use in vehicles and ships, conditions of storage and transportation, and microclimates

inside products are given in other parts of the IEC 60721-3 series.

A limited number of classes of environmental conditions is given, covering a broad field of

applications.
